Real Madrid have announced the creation of the European Solidarity Cup, a small tournament organised by the club, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan as a fundraiser to purchase healthcare resources for Spain and Italy. The event will take place in 2021 and only when fans are allowed to be in the stands.

Real Madrid C. F. are set to team up with FC Bayern and Inter Milan to host the European Solidarity Cup in 2021. The three clubs will come together to send out a message of solidarity and fraternity to the people of Europe.

The solidarity event will see three football matches held during 2021 in the cities of Madrid, Munich and Milan. The dates for these games will depend on the competitive calendar and of course will take place when the fans are able to return to the stands.

The three teams will all come up against each other: Real Madrid vs Inter Milan will happen in Madrid, Inter Milan vs FC Bayern is set for Milan and FC Bayern vs Real Madrid will be held in Munich. The proceeds from these games will go towards the purchase of healthcare resources in Italy and Spain. Healthcare staff who continue to fight the pandemic will be represented at all of the games. The three clubs wish to demonstrate to these heroes all of our solidarity, respect and gratitude.
